McClellan Development Authority Signs $3.5 Million Property Contract

A land transfer from the McClellan Development Authority in Calhoun County to the Center for Domestic Preparedness is finalized after M-D-A votes to approve the purchase.

At a Wednesday board meeting, the M-D-A Directors approved a contract for the sale of 94 acres of property and sixteen buildings to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for $3.5million. According to Congressman Mike Rogers, the Center for Domestic Preparedness is expected to use the additional land to conduct more complex exercises as well as consolidate its facilities and security footprint to ensure the most efficient operations possible. Rogers said he has been working with Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Craig Fugate to help advance the purchase and will continue to work with him to see the project through to its completion.
